Michael B. Jordan has his gloves on and he’s ready to step into the ring in the upcoming film Creed II.
On Tuesday, Metro Goldwyn Mayer Pictures (MGM) and Warner Bros. Pictures debuted the first official film stills from Creed II showing Jordan gearing up for the big showdown match.
Directed by Steven Caple Jr., Jordan reprises his role as Adonis Creed, who is about to face his next fight which is against Viktor Drago (Florian “Big Nasty” Munteanu), the son of Ivan Drago (Dolph Lundgren) who was responsible for killing Creed’s father in the ring in Rocky IV.
It’s a battle of vengeance and the below photos show Jordan’s Creed preparing to face his foe with a little help from the man himself, Rocky Balboa (played by Sylvester Stallone). Check out the photos below.
In addition to Jordan, Munteanu, and Lundgren, and Sylvester Stallone, the films also stars Tessa Thompson, Wood Harris, Russell Hornsby, Andre Ward, and Phylicia Rashad. Stallone also served as the writer for the film with Jordan, Ryan Coogler, and Guy Riede as executive producers. Stallone, Kevin King-Templeton, Charles Winkler, William Chartoff, David Winkler and Irwin Winkler produce.
The official synopsis for Creed II reads as follows:
[row]“Life has become a balancing act for Adonis Creed. Between personal obligations and training for his next big fight, he is up against the challenge of his life. Facing an opponent with ties to his family’s past only intensifies his impending battle in the ring. Rocky Balboa is there by his side through it all and, together, Rocky and Adonis will confront their shared legacy, question what’s worth fighting for, and discover that nothing’s more important than family. Creed II is about going back to basics to rediscover what made you a champion in the first place, and remembering that, no matter where you go, you can’t escape your history.”[/row]
The gloves come off when Creed II steps into the ring on November 21, 2018.
